Another glorious day greeted the sailors today, as Jeff Byerley took the reins over from David, to pro for the second day.
Very light conditions out of the north made for some difficult sailing for some early on, but we did get away on time and got two races in before pausing a minutes silence as a mark of respect to our fallen soldiers. We soon got away again, and completed another four races before the lunch call was made, and as if by design, the wind died out to nothing. Once lunch was done and dusted, the wind swing around to the south for us and we went to the second course area, where we completed some fantastic, close races right up until the scheduled close at 3.30pm.
In the end, Mikes day 1 lead was insurmountable, and although Lisa took out five races today, she still couldn’t edge closer to Mike, who came out the Tasmanian IOM Champion for 2018, on 57 points. Lisa Blackwood was very consistent in second place with 83 points, with Ray Joyce (110 points) holding off a fast finishing David Jones (113 points).
In all, a very enjoyable weekend by all who were able to make it. The weekend could not have got underway without the fantastic assistance from our Pro’s for the event – David Murfet and Jeff Byerley, along with our observers over the weekend, Wayne Behrens and Phil Turnbull.
